Shannon Barbour wants her patients to enjoy their lives to the fullest while battling cancer. As a Physical Therapist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), she helps restore mobility in patients and reduce any pain they experience.
Barbour, who has a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, joined our hospital in Newnan, Georgia, in June 2013. She completed her doctorate at Georgia State University in Atlanta in 2010.
Prior to CTCA, Barbour worked as a physical therapist in Ohio and Georgia. She was drawn to CTCA because of our Patient Empowered Care® model, which puts patients at the center of their treatment. Each clinician on a patient’s care team comes to meet the patient in one treatment room, so patients can have greater comfort and convenience.
“At CTCA, it truly is all about the patient,” Barbour says. “I want my patients to have hope and faith to fight the difficult fight.”
When meeting with patients, Barbour likes to engage them in conversation about their lives outside their treatment at CTCA. She talks with them about family, friends, sports or whatever else interests them to help ease their tension.
Barbour earned her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, with a focus on Exercise Science, from the University of Georgia in Athens in 2007. She graduated summa cum laude.
In her free time, Barbour spends time with family and friends. She enjoys sports, shopping and trying to be crafty. Barbour grew up in Peachtree City, Georgia, and was a competitive gymnast in Newnan for 10 years.
